Restless

By June 04, 2013 , , , , , , ,


That beautiful sunset you are looking at is snapped at Hua Hin, Thailand - one of my recent, most memorable holidays.

It's that time of the year when I feel restless and envious at some of my friends who are travelling or will be travelling, while I go through the same routine over and over again. My senses are numbed and I am uninspired. To a certain extent, I feel trapped. Yet, I have no one to blame but myself. I am a little disgruntled by the fact that I was so wrapped up in work that another long weekend is upon us and again, I have missed the chance to plan a getaway.

But instead of feeling sorry for myself, I have decided that come this July, I will live up to my new year resolution of gaining new experiences. I will start planning little weekend getaways and a couple of big ones. I'm also eager to travel alone, as my Facebook friend whom I barely speak to recently highlighted to me the freedom, liberty and thrill of travelling alone. But he's a man, so different rules may apply? Anyhow, if I do travel alone - I might have to keep the parents informed only after I have boarded the plane to my destination. They might be worried off their mind at the idea of me travelling alone.

But, here are some of the destinations on my list for 2013:

1. The Great Australian Outback


The Northern Territory with its beautiful national parks! I've heard May to November are the best months to visit. Pictured here is the famous Uluru National Park. While my Australian friends might find it strange and laughable that I should find the remote outback interesting, I feel that central Australia is where the heart of Australia is. Yes, the cafes, the restaurants, the footy are all part of the Australian culture, but they feel somewhat borrowed. The Great Outback, however, is uniquely Australian.

2. Mount Hotham, Victoria, Australia


I am a grown woman who has never seen the snow, nor have I ever been dragged along on a snow sleds by adorable yet fierce-looking huskies. So I am determined that I will do all the above this year. There's a certain romance attributed to snowflakes, yet I somehow have a feeling I won't like it very much. There's only one way to find out. The fact that Mount Hotham is not too far away from where I live means this is very achievable.

3. Angkor Wat, Cambodia


At the very end of the scale is the elusive Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Being a Buddhist and a bit of a Orientalist freak, I yearn to bask myself in the spectacular architecture and admire the masterpiece commissioned by a very OCD king. Have you not seen how perfect everything is lined up?? Surely the Khmer King was an odd freak. Being another odd freak myself, I would very much like to pick his brain on how to build an amazing monument expand his influence with a legion of loyal army.

Where would you like to travel this year?

Note: This is such a fun post to write. I feel like by putting it down in words and sharing my thoughts, you guys and the internet is keeping my accountable and that will more than likely propel me towards getting out of my comfort zone and banish the mediocrity that I have settled for.
